Hi folks,
looks like the sender ( has had his mail account hacked. Changing his password now will not help
to prevent the spam, as this spam bot uses another cracked mail account to actually send the spam, but inserts Robert's
address as the From: address.
Since Mailman uses only the sender address for authentication, the spam sending bots can now send their crap via the
rockbox mailing list, and probably the only viable workaround is to delete the sender address from the member list and
let Robert subscribe using a new address. He might already want to create a new address anyway since the old one is
essentially burnt now.
